I imagine they have a very special secret society handshake ... beyond words wonderful, Susan.

I'm getting to think the "poobahs" are making a come back ; (

Fiona said...

Oh yes!

Titus said...

Ooh, scary and a bit KKK and Illuminati all rolled into one. And yet so beautiful...

ArtSparker said...

Titus-Masonic too. I was a bit creeped out after I finished it.

Yes, I didn't know whether to find these scary or funny. Maybe certain things (nudge nudge, wink wink) can be both.

ma grande folle de soeur said...

I love it :)

aleph said...

can´t stop seeing a peacock instead of a man, of course, but I guess that´s how "the-most-important" of every secret society must look like. Like it a lot!

Tammie Lee said...

oh, I really really like this!

Cobalt Violet said...

Scary, funny, brilliant. Love the texture and patterns.

Cheryl said...

That is wonderful!!! Love the costume designs.

Cláudia said...

This one has his eyes covered by... a third eye!
But he does not look wiser at all.

The ensemble is beautiful, pure carnival!

Hah! When I saw this I wondered if my Masonic connections had inspired this - the blinders and what-not. They really are fairly harmless people and just enjoy their men's club with its ancient history. The costumes though can cause one to giggle.

The scene that was cut out of Eyes Wide Shut after Kubrick's death.

Celeste Bergin said...

deliciously weird

Joei Rhode Island said...

They are smiling aren't they? But I agree, a bit scary ... rather like Voodoo or Mardi Gras.
